ASUS GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB

This is the only stock speed 8800 GTS 320MB we have. Clock speeds of the 320MB are the same as the 640MB part, with the only difference being the amount of memory connected to the GPU. As we can see from the HSF sticker, ASUS is bundling their card with Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter.


The downside of our ASUS part is the fact that it is currently available at about $305 USD. This puts it in price competition with most of our overclocked hardware, which is certainly an advantage for other vendors. Many stock clocked 320MB parts can be had for about $275, and it's definitely worth saving the money in our opinion - especially if you already own or have no interest in GRAW.

    yeah same here, my first evga purchase was a 7800gt over a year ago and the next month the 7900gt came out so I sent my card to evga and they upgraded to a 7900gt at no extra charge. Shipping was fast and have had 0 problems with the card ever since. Now all I buy and recommend is evga. Reply

    We should also mention that the ASC3 solution from EVGA didn't have that much of an impact on temperature. We do see slightly better than average cooling performance, but it's just not enough to sell us on it for cooling alone. We would once again submit that it looks cool even if it doesn't cool much better than the stock HSF.


    From Page 12.

    I don't quite agree with your conclusion here. Sure, the temperatures are only a few degrees cooler than the other stock cards, but the ACS3 card is also clocked higher than the rest of the cards. I think when you take that into account, the fact that the ACS3 solution cools better than nearly every other card is pretty impressive.

    Other than some of the conclusions, very informative article. Definitely considering the eVGA card as an upgrade for my "aging" 7900GS KO.

    I usually enjoy AT's video card reviews, but this one seemed very rushed and with not much effort put into it at all. It reminded me of reviews you'd find from newbie review sites run by high-school kids.

    Sorry to say, but it's the truth. The whole "review" seemed like it only took you an hour to test the cards and post the review. :( Which is fine I guess, if that's what you were going for, but I expect more from Anandtech.

    Anyone else feel this way?

    You would probably be better served by waiting until nVidia irons out their drivers for these cards. However, I also must admit, I am tempted myself to buy one of these 8800GTS cards ( Titan Quest on my 7600GT does not seem to perform 'optimaly'). This being said, the games I play, for the most part play well enough, I think, for me to wait until nVidia gets their act together. Still, it IS tempting . . . Reply
